News Agency of Nigeria gathers that it took a 71st-minute strike from Solomon Agbalaka to give the Nigerian team the much-needed victory and three points ahead of their final group game against Mozambique.

In the opening match, Nigeria had fallen by the same margin (0-1) to Senegal on Sunday.

Nigerian football fans said the victory was well deserved, putting the team in a comfortable position.

A fan based in Lagos, Tope Ayomekun, said the match was tough, considering that Egypt were playing in front of home fans and also needed victory after drawing their first match.

“It was a great match that had all the electrifying moments expected from both sides, but in the end, the Nigerian team prevailed. I congratulate the team and wish them more success,” Ayomekun said.

Anthony Onyegbulam, another fan, said the team rose to the occasion and put their opponents in the right place to be. He said much was still needed from the team in their attack for more cohesion to deliver more goals.

Funsho Oguntokun, another fan, was happy about the result. He said Wednesday’s victory had given the team the confidence going into their last group phase game.

“It’s a great result. I congratulate the team. However, much is still needed to be done as no team is a pushover in this competition,” Oguntokun said.
